The "Z Press" Explained

Have you ever wondered why the Z Press is called the Z Press?

Especially since you sit in a V position.

But it isn’t really a V Sit either (but we digress).

The world’s strongest man, Zydrunas Savickas (Big Z), invented the Z Press. The Lithuanian is known as the world’s strongest man and the world’s strongest presser.

He developed the Z Press (also known as the Savickas Press) to build strength in the shoulders, upper back, trunk, and core.

And now you know why the Z Press is called the Z Press and not the V Press, seated press, or some other more logical name!!!
